Yes, I think he got his full asking price. I'm not surprised, the price was a little more then the average Catalina 22 but the maintenance and equipment were up to date instead of having the boat neglected for 5-10 years. So his boat sold quickly while this one has been sitting on CL for about a year:

I sold my Catalina 25 for a higher than average price (but less than I had invested) for the same reason.

Winter is a great sailing season here, the wind speeds tend to be higher and more consistent. I've seen well priced boats in good condition sell quickly at any time of year. The slowest is probably in the late fall.

Are you really in Honolulu? I don't think I'd recommend buying boats in this price range remotely, you really do need to see them in person to check condition.
